Hourglass had a fantastic start, but it turned disastrous as the story progressed. Our main character, Emerson sees ghosts. Her brother, Thomas has hired many people to help solve the problem, but none seem to do the job. Until he hires Michael. Emerson soon starts to develop feelings for Michael, of course, as their meetings start become more frequent. However, Thomas clearly spoke to Michael that Emerson is off limits. No pleasure or personal affection should be involved.
I liked Emerson - I really did - but what I didn't like was that she was so clingy towards Michael. She wanted to know where he was, who he was with, why hasn't he come back, etc. Her mind was constantly on about Michael. And I think that was the reason why I didn't enjoy this much as I wanted to. To be honest, I wished Michael was out of the picture. I didn't like Michael at all. Period. In fact, I prefer Kaleb over Michael, even though Kaleb and Emerson were going a little too fast.
Overall, Hourglass has its ups and downs, but I will definitely continue on with the series because I seem to enjoy the time travel aspect to this.
